Tully Ice Harvest Festival

leave a comment »

This video was taken from the annual Ice Harvest Festival in February of 2009 on the Green Lake of Tully, New York, which is about an hour south of Syracuse. The festival originally started with Ice Farmers that moved to Tully to find work. They would come from all over the world just to harvest the ice found here.

The video, narrated by Gordon Howard, a volunteer at the festival, shows the process of the harvest of the ice; from the clearing of the snow, to the scoring into 18-inch square blocks, to the transporting via horse-drawn carriages to the ice house.

Howard proceeds to discuss the history and economical impact that the festival has on the town, along with the importance of the help of the townspeople and invites any and everyone to come out and attend.
